Workforce shortage hurts agency risk management programs

Sixteen major agencies lack a cybersecurity risk management strategy, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office. The report, which compared the policies of the 23 civilian agencies that fall under the Chief Financial Officers Act, found that only seven of them — Commerce, Labor, State, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the General Services Administration, Office of Personnel Management and Social Security Administration — had strategies assessing the cyber risk of operations, assets, individuals, organizations and the nation. All 23 agencies, however, reported hiring and retaining key cybersecurity management personnel as the biggest barrier to the establishment of such a program. Dave Nyczepir has more.
